What is the use of political science?
Political science is the branch of social science that studies the theory of political systems and politics. ItÕs used as a tool to examine the process, systems, and political dynamics of a country.
Obviously there are people who consider political science to be a science, since it has the name political science, rather than, hypothetically, political guesswork, or political hallucinations. Political science does not have the same kind of precision as physics or chemistry, however, political scientists are capable of great scholarship and can use a genuinely scientific approach to the problem of understanding politics.
